The Epic Series and Squirt Cycling Products have announced a multi-year deal wherein Squirt Cycling Products increases its involvement with the Epic Series and becomes the Official Bicycle Care Products partner to the Epic Series and its global portfolio of class-leading mountain bike stage races.

Squirt Cycling Products has been involved with the Epic Series since 2010 through their partnership with the FNB Wines2Whales. In 2018, Squirt Cycling Products increased their involvement in the Epic Series by partnering with the Swiss Epic and then in 2019, the partnership was extended to the pinnacle event.

Squirt Cycling Products’ wax-base Squirt Chain Lube, Biodegradable Bike Cleaner, Squirt SEAL Tyre Sealant, and Squirt Barrier Balm have long been a favourite of mountain bikers across the world thanks to the brand’s distribution in 42 countries, sustainable approach to products and production, and their proven history of success.

“The IRONMAN®️ Group is excited to partner with Squirt Cycling Products as the brand is already globally recognised for their high-quality product and commitment to sustainability and biodegradability,” said Matt Wikstrom, Chief Partnership Officer at The IRONMAN®️ Group. “Squirt’s products have been tried and tested in the harshest conditions during the Epic Series races in Africa and they have always stood up to the challenges at hand. We look forward to welcoming Squirt Cycling Products to the entire Epic Series.”

As Official Bicycle Care Products supplier to the entire Epic Series, Squirt Cycling Products will offer complimentary bike washes after each stage, pre- and mid-stage chain lube stations to keep drivetrains running smooth, and Barrier Balm samples for all teams.

“Squirt Cycling Products is excited to once again be the Official Bicycle Care Product supplier to the 2022 Absa Cape Epic and the entire Epic Series,” explained Danie Van Wyk, Director Squirt Cycling Products. “We will be providing premium quality environmentally friendly products in line with our, and the Epic Series’ ethos of sustainability and care for the communities and environment we play in.”

Both the 2019 and 2021 FNB Wines2Whales encountered torrential downpours during the events, but the rain did little to dampen the spirits of the teams as they raced through the trails from Lourensford Wine Estate, to Oak Valley, to Hermanus. Squirt’s Chain Lube was the saviour of the day for many teams as it kept bikes going and thus ensured that riders could continue to enjoy the #SeriousGEES, despite the conditions.

“The Epic Series races take place in the most iconic regions that the world has to offer, and we strive to leave the trails and regions in as perfect condition as before the event arrived,” explained Kati Csak, Epic Series Senior Director of Global MTB. “Squirt Cycling Products’ dedication to recyclable and reusable packaging and the fact that their products are all biodegradable aligns perfectly with our mission of offering world-class experiences with little to no negative impact on the environment and I am excited to have them onboard across the global Epic Series.”
